I've got Ferritin levels of 7. Have been feeling mega tired but no-one would believe me & I have been having chest pain which G.P's were dismissive about. I done some reading & this can be cause by eating a Vegetarian diet. In my case the cause is Anorexia. Does anyone know how quickly your health improves after starting Ferrous Sulphate tablets?
my ferritin level was down to 3 and was having terrible heart palpitations, was told due to low iron/ferritin levels. was told to double up on iron to raise levels. you must also be careful if thinking about a vegetarian diet as alot of raw greens are bad for thryroid. hope this helps a little
